The Busiest Week in the World.

This is the busiest week in the world. It is! I know, you’re thinking I’m crazy. After all, loads of people have it off of school and work. It can’t be busy- they couldn’t possibly be wanting to do whatever it is you want to do! But they do. This is the one week you

Happy Holidays!

Here’s a picture taken at Disneyland this year (by my mom) just outside Big Thunder Ranch! We’ll be spending the holidays here in California with my in-laws (we alternate holidays between families just to keep things simple), and while it’s a lot of driving around- there’s a formalish dinner and gifts tonight at one house,

Quiet.

Well, at least on the blog. Things have been hectic at home. We’re in week #1 of Winter Break- the Oldest Kidlet gets three weeks off of school. Add in the fact that Christmas is Sunday, and… well, things are crazy. Last Sunday, I had horrible stomach cramps and had to lie down. So TheBoy

Do you believe?

Tonight as I was scrolling through Google+, I saw a person comment that if they had money they’d start a company to make sure that if a kid were to Google “Is Santa Real?” that they’d get back a site that said yes. There were a lot of +1′s, but a few people tried to

Lazy Writing, H5O.

I watch Hawaii Five-O. It’s by no means a realistic show. But I sort of love that I can turn off my brain and watch some crazy TV show once a week. Let’s admit it- with the way the show was in the first season, there was no way that any case could have ever

Progress of sorts.

Non-parents, I apologize. Nobody really wants to read about potty training. So feel free to skip this post. In the past I’ve talked about the Little Kidlet, and his stubbornness when it came to potty training. Yes, he’s four and still wears pull ups*. While he went through the motions in his class, he made

Might as well jump!

My sister, who is in Japan, asked me for help in getting copies of two albums. One is David Foster’s “The Christmas Album” (which I have) and Kenny and Dolly’s “Once Upon a Christmas” – which I can’t find my copy of, and apparently you can’t download anywhere. You can buy people’s used CDs… but

The Tale of a Lost Jacket

My children are creatures of habit. Every morning, we come downstairs, and they have breakfast while I make OK’s lunch and LK’s snack. They get start getting dressed 15 minutes before we leave the house, and jackets are the last thing we tackle before heading out the door. It’s been cold enough in the mornings

A year ago.

A year ago, the world fell out from underneath me. You see, a year ago I found out that my best friend died (on the day before). It’s been a strange year. One filled with sadness and a lot of anger. A lot. I’m not an angry person, but this had me shouting to the

Crossroads and artichoke sauce.

One week ago exactly, I was talking to the triage nurse and being admitted to the ER. I have no idea what my hemoglobin level is at today, but I feel comfortable saying it must be pretty good. I have no idea what the future brings, except that it looks unlikely like I’ll have to
